I Drank Only Water for 20 Days, See What Happened to My Body

  • Published on Oct 19, 2018
  • What is water fasting? What are its benefits? Intermittent fasting is gaining huge popularity as a dietary option, but what actually happens to your body when you fast? When I first heard about water fasting, I thought, “No way am I doing this!” But after doing some research and finding out about the benefits of this process, I changed my mind. And now I'm going to tell you what I experienced during my 20-day water fast.
    The first 2 days were going to be the most difficult. And they were indeed! I felt incredibly hungry - almost as if I had missed several breakfasts, lunches, and dinners. My energy level dropped, and my mood left much to be desired. I was increasingly irritated, and my patience was wearing thin.

    - When your body can't get access to carbohydrates (its favorite source of energy), it starts to use stored fats. As a result, you can lose about 1 lb of fat every day. This makes water fasting one of the most effective short-term weight loss methods.
    - Water fasting can also help if you have digestive problems like irritable bowel, diarrhea, gas, gastritis, constipation, or loss of appetite.
    - The first 2 days were going to be the most difficult. I felt incredibly hungry - almost as if I had missed several breakfasts, lunches, and dinners.
    - On the third day, the second stage of my water fasting began. By that time, the much-awaited process of ketosis had started. That's when your body gets down to burning the fat it has stored as it has no other sources of energy.
    - After the first week of feeding myself nothing but water, I experienced a kind of “fasting high.” I felt great, happy, and impressively energetic. But what pleased me the most was a particular clarity of mind.
    - When I got to the fifteenth day of my water fasting, I was incredibly proud of myself! I knew that very few people reach this stage. I also knew that this was a period when I had to be immensely attentive to my condition and visit a doctor if I felt that something had gone wrong.
    - Believe it or not, I felt at my best after my water fast. I lost some weight (though not as much as I’d expected). My vitals were impressive in a good way, and some health abnormalities were no longer a cause for concern.

      You suppose to take salt .. to keep your blood pressure up .. it wouldn't have broken your water fast only live enzymes can break your fast. Taking minerals in their raw forms are okay as well. Also when you break the water fast .. you suppose to take probiotics .. one with 40 billion cfu's one pill in the morning and the night then day 2 you can use cocunt water or dates is good too. Example in the Bible a man didn't eat for 3 days and no water and david feed him a cake of figs or dates. Break your fast with dates is great too.

    Try fasting for twenty days working in deep water, or on a construction site or driving any kind of vehicle for a living. This is for people with perfect lives that clearly do not do much. 24 hour fasting is extremely beneficial and not likely to endanger your life.

As shared, after Day 3, hunger almost vanishes. 11 more days to go after today. Lets see. Currently, I've reduced by 6 kgs and I assume that my body has benefitted a lot more than this. Thank you so much for the video.

    Your recommendations as to who should do prolonged fasting contradict each other I am in a dilemma because you say it's good if you have gastritis but also because of the form of gastritis in pancreas problem I have I have an unhealthy weight which means I have lost about 20 to 25% of my original weight some very very skinny but I also have gastritis. So what's the longest I should do a fasting safely?

      +The Greek Pianist It only sounds unhealthy, because you are conditioned to take medication and not using a natural healing process that is part of our evolutionary history. We are designed for periods of feasting and periods of nothing but water, until we found grounds with enough plants to start feasting again. There is a mechanism, which kicks in around day 1 and day 2, called Authophagy, which causes the body to remove spent cells and proteins that are causing all kinds of negative effects. This leads to repair of the body, higher function, increased immune system, etc. All of this has been known for thousands of years, but the reason WHY and HOW that happened wasn't known until a Japanese scientist discovered that effect and received the Nobel Prize in Medicine in 2016.
